Lucky me!  I've received my first bloggy award from Fiona over at Rainbows and Daisies.  Fiona lives in Ireland and has a lovely blog with beautiful pictures.  Stop by and visit her.  You'll be glad you did. Thanks Fiona.

The Liebster Award is meant to connect us even more and spotlight new bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Every blogging award usually is accompanied by a set of rules.  This award is no has five rules.

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet - other writers. 

5. And best of all - have fun and spread the karma!

The five Blogs I've chosen to spotlight are as follows, in no particular order.  I must say that I had a hard time finding five blogs on my list who had fewer than 200 followers.
1. Taryterre over at  I just discovered her blog a couple days ago.  She has great food posts as well as slice of life entries accompanied by lovely pictures.

2. Kath from S. Dakota at is the first blog I started following a couple of years ago. The haf'dozen in her blog title refers to her 6 children who are gradually starting to leave the nest.  She has some great stories to tell.

3.  Holly at Hoosier at Heart has a unique sense of humor and is always good for a laugh. I met her this past summer and you wouldn't believe the foolish things she made us do - in public.

4.  Jo, at Just Call Me Jo is Holly's partner in crime in Arizona and likes to pretend she's cranky, but she's just funny.

5. Hanne and Michael at Penticton Commentary write a blog about life in Canada's beautiful Okanagan Valley.  Gorgeous pictures.

So those are my choices for the Liebster Award.  Pop over and check their great blogs out.

Congratulations! I am already a follower of Michael and Hanne's blog, Penticton Commentary. Not only are Michael's photographs superb, but he cannot resist injecting his quirky humour into both his posts and comments he leaves on other blogs. They are a charming and inspiring couple who enjoy life to its fullest! I will take a peek at the others who are unknown to me. Have a good weekend with all your family!
